Very late to this topic I realise, but I attempted a Grecon last night, which I think will be good enought to sit in a house. Feet and legs are pretty bad, but having read the tutorial subsequently, I can see that I should have made some feet to go on before the binding .

So as well as rectifying the foot situation, I could do with some advice on hair. I used embroidery thread and threaded it through the scalp, so it looked as though it was growing from the hairline and parting. I then glue gunned more hair underneath to give bulk. I am not a purist.

However, this only gave me the option of a pony tail really, which I did.My question is whether there were any wigging pictures which I cannot find. For another attempt, I would like to try an older person with curly hair. I used a bead which I sewed cloth onto for the head.

Unfortunately I am unable to upload photos at present - this has never happened to me before! I will try again later when I have laptop access again. My daughter tells me we have the latest Flash, so not sure what else to try.

Cheers!

Your photo problem may be because some browsers, e.g. Google Chrome, no longer support Flash by default, even if it's installed and up to date.


If you are using Google Chrome, you will need to enable Flash for the DHPP site specifically, by following these steps:


1. On your computer, open Chrome.

2. Open DHPP.

3. To the left of the web address, in the address bar, click the Info

    icon [the i in a circle].

4. This opens a drop-down menu.

5. In this menu, on the far right of "Flash," click on the arrow.

6. This opens another dropdown menu.

7. From this Flash menu, click Always allow on this site.

8. Reload the page.


(You may need to do something similar if you're using another browser).

Thank you Brooksey. Will try again when I get my paws on my new laptop next week, and I have now found Valerie’s head and hair instructions!

Thank you for replying Brooksey - haven’t had time to look - just on iPad at the mo, but as far as I can remember, just the page details.
